Albany - The Georgia Court of appeals says that a convicted child abuser did not have his rights violated when he continued to volunteer information during an investigation. In February, 2005 Michael Mulvaney was convicted of repeatedly abusing his girlfriend's three year old daughter.

Specifically, Mulvaney was convicted of burning the child with cigarettes, ripping large amounts of hair from her head, and causing serious disfigurement to her ear. Mulvaney appealed the conviction claiming that his statements to police should have been suppressed because he asked for an attorney.

The Court of appeals found that just after Mulvaney asked for an attorney, he continued to talk to the police officer and that the officer was not interrogating Mulvaney by choosing to listen.
